Phoenix New Times' Description

The largish stage located off to the side of this landmark bar and music venue has been graced by plenty of big bands over the years, including Grey Daze (the forerunner of Linkin Park), Eagles of Death Metal, and Hoobastank, just to name a few. And just as its stage has featured an endless amount of rock and hip-hop acts over the past two decades, the Big Fish Pub itself has hosted countless music fans, drinkers, and ASU kids. This landmark Tempe bar has gone through a number of changes over the past couple years, going from a raucous rock club to a more of a jazz/blues joint and back again. These days, however, it features a rather versatile and varied lineup of music events during the week, including everything from heavy metal and hip-hop showcases

    This place is awesome for watching live music on a friday night! It's small and intimate with a really cool dive feel, I love it! Best for local music discovery

    Monday offers karaoke, Wednesday is open-mic night, & live music dominates the rest of the week. The bartenders, cute & scantily clad, are always eager to share the drink specials w/ patrons.

    Stop by on a Sunday night for an open mic and a pint of Blue Moon!
